Ennead celebrates the ribbon cutting of Jefferson Health’s Honickman Center, a flagship medical facility in Center City, Philadelphia, and the epicenter of a more than $1 billion urban development project.

In advance of the event, the Philadelphia Business Journal published the first article on the Honickman Center:

"This is really the new model, the next model, of how Jefferson is going to deliver services into the future and maintain its competitiveness as well as improve and enhance the care it is providing both to its patients and the community as a whole," said Clayton Mitchell, senior vice president for real estate and facilities for Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals. "[This is] the future of ambulatory care for the industry.

Jefferson partnered with National Real Estate Development, LLC to conceptualize and develop the Honickman Center project. Designed by Ennead, the 19-story, 462,000-square-foot building deftly integrates into the dense urban neighborhood while introducing a curved glass façade which draws inspiration from Philadelphia’s history of textile production and establishes an innovative new architectural identity.

“This new landmark tower creates such a positive impact at several different scales, bringing specialty healthcare services to the community, acting as cornerstone and institutional anchor to National Real Estate’s East Market development, and contributing a distinguished new addition to the Philadelphia skyline,” said Ennead Partner Thomas Wong.
